EDDC Leader says Cranbrook won’t be sold to local authorities – can we be sure?

28 Feb

In this week’s Midweek Herald (no link available at this time but in e-edition page 22) Councillor Paul Diviani is quoted as saying that housing at Cranbrook will not be sold to other councils.

Er, that isn’t quite the same as saying that the houses will not be occupied by people put there by other councils, surely?  What if a big company buys, say, 50 houses and then enters into an arrangement with another council from anywhere else in the country to house its residents?  What’s to stop them?

Sure, EDDC would not then have sold houses to another council – it would have sold them to a developer who then either rents them or sells them to another council!
